Section 1719.14 | Managing board of directors or trustees.


Whenever, by a will under which any corporation is organized under sections 1719.01 to 1719.13 of the Revised Code, it is provided that the corporation shall be managed by a board of directors or trustees consisting in whole or in part of public officials of any kind, including municipal, county, state, or federal officials, judges, representatives, or senators, and when such testamentary provision for management, either expressly or by fair inference from the will, is subject to the condition that it is consistent with law and practicable, then if and when such manner or form of management is found to be inconsistent with law or impracticable, and the board of directors or trustees of such institution determines by resolution that it is impracticable for such public officials to act as directors or trustees of such corporation, the directors or trustees, by amendment to the articles of incorporation, may provide for the election by its director or trustees of suitable persons to succeed such public officials as directors or trustees of such corporation. The terms of such successors shall be fixed by the board, and the terms of directors or trustees thereafter elected to succeed the directors or trustees first appointed under this section shall be fixed by the board or determined in accordance with the regulations and bylaws of the corporation. The members of the board of directors or trustees shall be the members of the corporation.
